So today I got some not great news: I lost out on a listing. The seller interviewed at least two agents, maybe three, and they chose another agent. D’oh. Sure they went with a good agent and I’m sure she’ll take good care of them and all will be fine for them, and everything will be fine for me too. But of course, I don’t go on listing appointments with the intention of not getting the listing…or do I? Because that’s the thing: we are 100% responsible for what happens to us. We write our own ticket. We create our own destiny. The universe does exist in which I could have walked out of the listing appointment with a signed listing agreement, but I did not. And why is that? Well for one, I didn’t go to the appointment with a listing agreement to sign. That probably would have helped. And there’s a bunch of other stuff that I could have done whereby I’d have ended up with the job. But I didn’t do it. And I lost out. It’s all on me, truly. But I’m not going to cry in my milk, because the only way we grow is through failure, so there is value in that. Just pick yourself up, dust off, and keep on moving down the road. Next!
